Water Drops Orbiting a Needle in Space

(Video Link) Don Pettit, an astronaut and science educator whose work we’ve featured extensively on Neatorama, is now on the International Space Station. For his most recent demonstration, Pettit charged knitting needles with static electricity and then shot water drops at them. The drops, attracted by the charge, orbited the needles.
